with south korea panama, and columbia. colombia. i'm not in favor of the panama trade deal why? because panama is a giant tax haven. that's probably why mitt romney loves it. who does it help? not you. do you have a tax shelter in panama welcome unless you're a giant multimillion international corporation, i doubt it. he's not done yet. he'll talk about his tax plan. gee, i wonder who this helps. >> i'll bring down the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. and individual tax rate, 20% across the board. >> cenk: once again that would help the giant corporations and the really really rich. it would add $600 billion to the deficit. that is almost all going to the rich. i thought you were going to balance the budget, no you're increasing the budget. the corporate taxes in 2011 were at a 40-year low. they're at tax rate of 12.1%. how low can you make them? mitt romney will give it a shot. do you think that would help you? it's not going to help you. if that would help, it would have helped under bush. mitt romney's campaign is not designed to help you. it's designed to help the people who are
trusties, but, trust, panama corporations would raise red flags with any tax authority. it is what mitt romney says about this, you say, that is of concern. nick shaxson? >> yes. this is a very important point. people seek offshore tax havens as a shady little island somewhere. one of the things i explore in my book, "treasure island's," since the 1970's, the u.s. itself has been turning itself quite deliberately into a tax haven in its own right. attracting foreign money, a lot of illicit for money from overseas through offering things such as special tax exemptions and secrecy -- financial secrecy. delaware and nevada and wyoming, offering very, very low cost, strong secrecy through corporations. this is profoundly difficult thing. one of many vehicles through which this illicit money can come in is the private equity business. there is no requirement on private equity companies to enforce the tax laws of other countries. a filing i am covered during my research -- i am covered during my research showed the strange entities in the bahamas and panama, all of these places are renowned t
investment funds from wealthy foreigners most of the money through corporations registered in panama. some of the most secretive of business laws exist there in panama. does that story prove the president's points, that business leaders don't come by successful initiatives on their own? >> well, i think certainly not, tom. i think the recent polls you've cited have shown that the president's false attacks on mitt romney aren't working right now and the people care about the economy. i want to turn to your point about the context of the president's you didn't build that remark. there was a good article by phil klein this morning saying that the contextually made that comment worse. if you look at the whole speech and what he's arguing, it's that the way that we're going to fix this economy, the way that we're going to get out of this ditch is through more government and not by unleashing the private sector. his argument was that people, small business owners, you're not that smart, you didn't work that hard, you didn't earn that. it happened because of the government. that's the wrong way t
